Max and Charlie Carver are taking to the small screen in a new show from Drew Barrymore.

The twins will appear in ‘Blooms’ on MTV. It is described by the channel as “a crime drama/coming of age story of twentysomething twin brothers, Andrew and Elliott Bloom, who learn of one another’s existence upon the murder of their father.”


The twins’ characters will inherit their father’s criminal empire, and form a strong bond to survive.

Bisexual star Drew Barrymore is co-executive producer of the show through Flower Films.

Charlie Carver, who recently starred in James Franco’s ex-gay drama ‘I Am Michael’ came out as gay in January.

The twins rose to fame in Desperate Housewives.

Charlie, on coming out, said he is “forever grateful” to those in Hollywood who helped him realise he did not need to stay in the closet.

Carver’s Teen Wolf co-star and twin brother Max is straight, as acknowledged in the Instagram post.

“Let the record show my twin brother is just as cool for being straight,” he concludes.

Carver was announced to be starring in ‘I Am Michael’ in August 2014.

It was revealed early on in the making of the film, which follows ex-gay activist Michael Glatze, that Carver would appear in a threesome scene with Franco and Quinto, which he described as “hot as hell”.

However, he was commenting on the actual temperature in the studio, saying: “We were in an attic in Long Island in the middle of the summer… and the air conditioning was broken… So it was just… uh, memorable?”

Despite saying he initially wasn’t comfortable with doing the scene, he later came around to the idea, an said it was never intended to be “salacious”.

He joked: “I think when you have a scene like that, you have to have a sense of humour and just go for it.”
